PRE-COLUMBIAN ISRAELITES
OF THE ANDES
AND
SEPHARDIC
COLONIZATION IN ANTIOQUIA

SIERRA NEVADA SANTA MARTA COLOMBIA

"And the Mayab of the Andes
be then the cradle
of the new civilization."
("The Flight of the Feathered Serpent")

One of these Mysteries is that of the arrival of "the sons of Israel" at the Cordilleras of the Andes and the following colonization in the Andean Mountains and Mounts and Valleys of Antioquia by Sephardic Jews for the resurgence of the stream of Early Gnostic Christianity as in Antioch of Syria in other times.

In the book "Cherokee DNA Studies Real People Who Proved the Geneticists Wrong", written by "DONALD N. YATES and TERESA A. YATES", they say:

"I ran a search for matches on Bowles DNA in the Y-STR Haplotype Reference Database. [...] the predominant matches in our Melungeon surname study have led to the Iberian Peninsula and to places like Antioquia, Colombia, [...]. Here was a Jewish haplotype that, historically speaking, seemed to have traveled out of Scandinavia and the Baltic region, passed through Italy to Spain and Scotland and migrated on to the Americas, where it mingled with the Indians.".

- Prologue -

The Mayab of the Andes is Spiritual and Individual. It is not a group of people. Nor have we to go and live on a mountain, mount or in a particular region or be followers of people to become part of the People of Israel of the spiritual part.

Esoterically, the Andean Mountains or Mounts are "The Three Mountains": the journey along the Esoteric Path of Christification.

Wherever we are on the Planet, without leaving home, the city or country where we live, if one works with The Three Factors of the Revolution of the Consciousness, the individual, particular Path of the Mayab is being formed there, inwardly, spiritually, within each Being.

We owe all the Sacred Gnostic Teachings to our Venerable Master Samael Aun Weor and to our Venerable Master Rabolú and of which Venerable Master Thoth-Moisés bears faithful testimonies.

The Three Factors of the Revolution of the Consciousness and the Initiatic-Esoteric Path of The Three Mountains have never been unveiled to Humanity. This Mission has been entrusted to the Avatar of the New Age of Aquarius our V.M. Samael Aun Weor the Fifth Angel of Apocalypse and to the Prophet Elijah reincarnated in our V.M. Rabolú, and of whom V.M. Thoth-Moisés the Prophet Moses reincarnate bears faithful testimonies.

Venerable Master Samael Aun Weor who is the true Avatar of Aquarius has his Egyptian Resurrected Body and He is a completely Christified Liberated Master; and nowadays He is not a known person who is acting publicly or leading groups of people in Mexico, Colombia, or Peru, etc. He continues Working in Father's Great Work, helping all poor Suffering Humanity with his Resurrected Body within the Fourth Dimension, and He will come at the end, just as it is written about the Fifth Angel in the Book of Revelation of St. John.

Venerable Master Rabolú is a Master who also achieved Christification and total Liberation and He will not reincarnate again in these end times. So was it declared to us by the Master, personally, in 1996. Venerable Master Rabolú is still Working continuously in Father's Great Work from the Higher Dimensions, helping all poor Suffering Humanity, as the Prophet Elijah did in past times.

V.M. Thoth-Moisés, through the person of his Bodhisattva, is only bearing testimonies of Their Teachings.

Jesus of Nazareth or Yeshua "the Divine Rabbi of Galilee" is our Supreme Messiah (Anointed One or Christ), the Only Begotten Son of God, of the Absolute Heavenly Father, our True God.

"23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them. 25 And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan." (Matthew 4: 23-25).

Rabbi Shimon ben Yohai
was the Reincarnation
of Prophet Moses' Soul

The Mysteries of our Father who is in Heaven are inscrutable. We understand them as He, according to his Holy Will, reveals their understanding and their fulfillment to us, which must lead us to "a fountain beyond the summits of the [Andean] mountains, instead of leading to the sea." Along that current the Holy Apostle Judas of Kerioth lives and serves "so that others also rise up the river of destiny".

"... destiny is not and has never been in the hands of men, but in the will of the Great Hidden Lord in the Highest and Most Sacred of the Mayab, beyond the summits of the Andean mountains." ("The Flight of the Feathered Serpent")

One of these Mysteries is that of the arrival of "the sons of Israel" at the Cordilleras of the Andes and the following colonization in the Andean Mountains and Mounts and Valleys of Antioquia by Sephardic Jews for the resurgence of the stream of Early Gnostic Christianity as in Antioch of Syria in other times.

"Antioch [of Syria] becomes the center from where methodical consistent propaganda is made. Among this group of Jews and Gentiles who believe that Jesus has been Jews' Messiah, the Greek word "Christ" is used for the first time, which is the literal translation of Meschiaj (Messiah) and since then the nameless believers have been called Christians."

(...)

"... Among these doctrines, gnosis featured prominently in Antioch, its philosophical school is a mixture of Christianity, Oriental and Jewish beliefs."

"Gnosis had its importance during the early years of Christianity and found many disciples in Antioch. It was a religious philosophical doctrine that sought God's nature and attributes with the intervention of magic; other sects claimed to have an intuitive knowledge of the divine attributes." ("De los Judíos en la Historia de Colombia" por Daniel Mesa Bernal, "Jews in the History of Colombia" by Daniel Mesa Bernal).

It was in Antioch of Syria where our Lord Jesus The Christ's Flock began to be called with the name Christians: "... and the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch." (The Acts of the Apostles, 11:26).

The spiritual stream of early Christians from Antioch of Syria was very especially contained in the poetic and "markedly optimistic" language of Salvation of the "Odes of Solomon" with content about Essene and Gnostic doctrines of an antiquity that dates back to the year 70 of our Christian Era.

The Odes of Solomon are one of the oldest testimonies of Early Christianity Communities.

"The Odes of Solomon", containing "a Gnosis in broad sense", range from an Essene Gnosis or Knowledge, rooted in the dawn of Early Christianity, to its new flowering and fruition in the Christian Gnosis and, later, in the Valentinian Christian Gnosis.

The "Odes of Solomon" are regarded by scholars as one of the greatest discoveries "for the knowledge of early Christianity"; "the oldest Collection of Christian Hymns"; "a Gnostic Hymnal of the second century"; containing "a Gnosis in broad sense"; or written by an author belonging to the Qumran Essene Community and integrated in the bosom of Early Christianity.

"Recently further parallels have been noticed, especially with the Gospel of Truth [of the Gnostic Master Valentine] and the Hodayot [Hymns], the Thanksgiving Hymns of the Qumran Community."

The Christian Gnosis of Valentine and the Valentinians continued through Shimon ben Yohai's esoteric language of Kabbalah in the Zohar and Isaac Luria's teachings of Kabbalah (Sixteenth Century, 1534-1572).

The explanations transmitted by Isaac Luria to his Disciple Hayyim Vital about the "En Soph" or Holy Infinite (the Infinite Father), his contraction, concentration or withdrawal in Himself and His emanation of the first Light, have many similarities with Gnostics' (Valentinians') conceptions of Early Christianity about the Absolute or Pleroma, His withdrawal (of the Supreme Being, the Inaccessible God, the Absolute Father) in Himself from the exact central point of His Infinite Light and His first emanation: "The Small Idea": Jesus, as it is stated, for example, in "The Books of Jeu" ("Book 1 of Jeu") mentioned by Jesus the Christ our Lord in the "Pistis Sophia", which indicates that they were written in an earlier time, although coming from the same Gnostic Esoteric circle.

Isaac Luria's Kabbalistic Doctrine is "deeply related" to the Gnostic Doctrine of true Gnostic Christians of Early Christianity that has its highest and fullest expression in "The Books of Jeu" and the "Pistis Sophia".

Isaac Luria was born in Jerusalem in 1534, some 40 years after the Jews were expelled from Spain. For many years he dedicated himself to studying Shimon ben Yohai's teachings contained in The Zohar, which he was able to understand thanks to what was spiritually revealed to him by the Prophet Elijah, teachings that He transmitted to his Disciple Hayyim Vital and to other Disciples in Safed, Galilee.

Rabbi Shimon ben Yohai was the reincarnation of Prophet Moses' Soul, and Rabbi Isaac Luria was the reincarnation of Shimon ben Yohai's Soul.

Rabbi Hayyim Vital was the reincarnation of Prophet Elijah's Soul.

Shimon ben Yohai's and Isaac Luria's teachings prepared the resurgence of the stream of Gnostic teachings in the New Age of Aquarius which began on February 4, 1962.

Isaac Luria, explaining what is written in the section of the Zohar (Ray"ah Mehemna, Bereishis 25b; 253), tells Hayyim Vital that Aaron the Priest was (at the time of the Exodus) Moses' Interpreter (As Moses was of "uncircumcised lips").

And that "In the End of Days", Moses "will return" and will be of "uncircumcised lips" again. But the Prophet Elijah (Eliyahu), who will be reincarnated, "will be his Interpreter", as Aaron was Moses' interpreter.

The Prophet Moses was Enoch or Metatron Sar Hapanim Reincarnate:

"103" "... none but you may use Metatron Sar Hapanim since your name [MoSheH] is intimated in the initials of his, for the initial letters of the words Metatron Sar Hapanim are Mem shin hei, which spell Mosheh (Moses)." (The Zohar, Parashat Pinhas, Volume I.)

The French Kabbalist, Abbot Eliphas Levy, referring to "the coming of the Messianic era", wrote in "Major Arcana and Key of Solomon" in 1860:

"Enoch will appear in the year two thousand of the Christian era. Then, Messianism, of which he will have to be the precursor, will flourish on earth for one thousand years. These forecasts are the result of all the prophecies and of all the qabbalistic calculations…"

(Moses' Soul was the Reincarnation of the Soul of Abel, Seth, [Enoch], Noah and Shem: "In the beginning, Moshe [Moses] was Hevel [Abel], who was the son of Adam HaRishon. Later, he (Hevel) reincarnated into Shais [Seth], then Noach [Noah], and after that, into Shem son of Noach." [...]. "Noach reincarnated into Moshe,...". Isaac Luria, "Gates of Reincarnation").

The Hebrew Prophecies announced that, in the end times, the Prophet Elijah and the Prophet Moses would be reincarnated and that the Prophet Elijah would be like Aaron and as the Precursor of the Prophet Moses:

"In the future in the generation of Moshiach [in these Last Days], Moses' Soul will return in a Reincarnation to teach Torah to Israel. The Messiah [Moses or Shiloh] will also be peaceful and not very eloquent [i.e. most of the "People" will not listen to him] as (happened to) Moses; and Eliyahu [Elijah, Elias] the prophet will be a "translator" for him. Eliyahu (Elijah) will be the Reincarnation of Pinchas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the High priest,..."

"The Zohar says (Ray'ah Mehemna, Bereishis 25b; 253) that even though Moshe Rabbeinu was the teacher of all of Israel, his interpreter was Aharon HaKohen, as it says, 'He will be a mouth for you' (Shemos 4:16), since Moshe had a 'heavy mouth' and 'heavy tongue.' In the 'End of Days' in the generation of Moshiach, Moshe will return to teach Torah to Israel and will still be of 'uncircumcised lips.' However, Eliyahu, who will 'chai,' will be his interpreter, and this is the sod of the posuk, 'Pinchas the son of Elazar the son of Aharon HaKohen' (Bamidbar 25:11). This is as it is written, 'If [one is drawn] to scoffers, he will scoff' (Mishlei 4:37): when they will need a translator for Moshe, Eliyahu who will be 'chai' will translate and be Moshe's interpreter."

"The word for 'scoff' can also mean intrepret; Pinchas became Eliyahu." ("The Gate of Reincarnations", "Thirty-Sixth Introduction", by Isaac Luria.)

"However, this time his interpreter will be Eliyahu, who will live again. Actually, he is Pinchas ben Elazar ben Aharon HaKohen, the brother of Moshe Rabbeinu. This is what it means, 'If (one is drawn) to the scoffers, he will scoff, but (if one is drawn) to the humble he will find favor,' that is, to the interpreters." ("The Gate of Reincarnations", by Isaac Luria.)

From Safed to Amsterdam
From Amsterdam
to the Andes of Colombia

The Gnostic Christian Stream flowed from Palestine to Antioch of Syria and from there, like in other places, it received a warm reception from Kabbalists of Safed in Galilee, very especially Isaac Luria's teachings transmitted in the writings by his Disciple Hayyim Vital, reaching the circles of Christian and Jewish Mystics of Amsterdam, Holland, wherein he had many followers.

In Amsterdam, Menasseh ben Israel (Manoel Dias Soeiro, 1604-1657), Portuguese Jew, was integrated into a wide circle of Jewish and Christian friends, being called for that reason, "the father of Judeo-Christian friendship".

In the seventeenth century there were many Jewish converts in Holland.

Menasseh ben Israel studied Shimon ben Yohai's and Isaac Luria's teachings of the Kabbalah.

Sephardim of Portuguese origin, who in some way came to know the studies of Jewish Mysticism carried out in the Kabbalistic circles of Amsterdam and who were part of the first Jewish settlers arrived in South America, some of them having settled themselves in the mountains of ancient Antioquia (*1), Colombia, undoubtedly conveyed this knowledge to their descendants, enclothing it with names, costumes and traditions adapted to the way of being of their time. The "memories" of those esoteric teachings of the Torah were deposited in the Paisas' (*2) subconscious and in their genetic memory, although they had already lost the memory of them, due to the need that forced them to appear not as Jews before other settlers who were not of Sephardic origin, remaining hidden by the veil of symbolism in many of their customs and traditions.

(*1) Here we use the words "ancient Antioquia" as a reference to identify the possible territory in the cordillera where Aaron Levi met a group of Israelites who were already there long before Europeans' arrival and obviously long before that part of the territory within the cordillera was given the name of Antioquia.

(*2) "Paisas" is a word that encompasses the native of Antioquia, Caldas, Quindio, Risaralda, Libano (Tolima) and other Departments of Colombia where there was Antioquian colonization.

The writer Eduardo Santa who was born in Libano, Tolima Department, widely develops "el fenómeno" de "La Colonización Antioqueña" ["the phenomenon" of "La Colonización Antioqueña" ("The Antioquian Colonization")...], in his book so titled.

It must be taken into account that Antioquian territory map has changed several times: 1580, 1644, 1760, 1800, 1813, 1824, 1830, 1847, 1851, 1856, 1863, 1886, 1905, 1908, 1910, 1926, 1960…

A great deal of Antioquians' religious traditions and customs are both Sephardic and Christian, although rooted in ancient Israelite traditions.

From the Andes of Colombia the fountain and sprout of the tree of Early Gnostic Judeo-Christianity have sprung up again: there the human persons of the Three Messiahs announced in the Essene Texts from Qumran were born.

With the expulsion of the Jews from Spain and Portugal in the late fifteenth century, a new dispersion was originated not only to the Holy Land, Egypt and elsewhere in Europe, but also to America.

The expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492 coincided with the "discovery of America" in that same year.

From the early days of conquistadors' arrival to the Indies after called America, a large number of Portuguese Jews arrived to these lands. "These were deep-rooted in the Mosaic law and their religious faith. They were a nucleus closer than the Spanish".

Many Spanish Jews were forced to move to Portugal before they emigrated to America: Argentina, Brazil, the Andean region, the Caribbean Islands and lands, etc.

By the year 1882 and thereafter, some "Words ascribed to judge Manuel Antonio del Campo y Rivas" became renowned, we quote some textual paragraphs of them in the way of writing of that time:

"We have already said that [marshal] jorge Robledo, one of the lieutenants of Belalcázar..., founded the cities of Anserma..., Cartago, Arma and Antioquia..."

"The marshal, who manifested a very striving spirit in all his undertakings, brought many Gypsy families, i.e. of Egyptian origin; as Gypsy in our Romance is but the transformation of that same word. He left fourteen families in Antioquia or Santa Fé, that were moved by Juan de Cabrera to the other side of the great river of Santamarta or Cauca, four in Cartago, then, in Arma and Anserma, he left none, and the other fews in the plains of Buga..."

"But gypsies, they all moved down to Aburrá Valley…" (Medellín).

"We said that gypsies or Egyptians had settled themselves in the Aburrá valley, and there they have increased in number throughout that vast country; the villa de la Candelaria of Medellín being founded with them... As you should know that these gypsies are Jews established from the time of the Pharaohs in Egypt..."

"...The marshal gave them the land of Aburrá as far as the hill called Buriticá [*] that now borders on the civil Government of Popayán..."

* [according to the official website of Buriticá in Antioquia, Colombia, the municipality of Buriticá (bordering south on Santafé de Antioquia) is located at a distance of 93 kilometers from Medellín].

"Almost all the people who live in that region are from the gypsies we talked about and their mingling with indigenous women, for the marshal indeed forced his soldiers to get married with indigenous women..."

These words have arisen many controversies, which some ascribed to the aforementioned "Judge of the Kingdom of Guatemala, Assistant Dean of the Royal Audience of Guadalajara in the Kingdom of Galicia, Viceroyalty of New Spain and collegiate of San Bartolomé de Bogotá..." Others argue that they were wrongly ascribed to him, given that no document was found that confirms their authorship.

In any case, among those who accompanied Jorge Robledo from Cartagena to colonize Antioquia, there were Jewish converts.

Tradition about Gypsies' Egyptian origin is very old and, although someone has tried to assign them an Hindustan origin, their Religious Laws have many parallels with the Hebrew Torah.

In "La Biblia en verso [The Bible in verse] by Ignacio de Luzán [1702-1754] (257 unpublished octaves)..." in "The National Library of Madrid", an ancient manuscript is preserved "under the codex Mss. 2528..." In one of its verses, it is written:

"XXXV - THE BUSH THAT MOSES SAW"

"Oh Moses, barefoot He worships the holy Deity hidden in the fire that was burning the bush.

Don't be afraid, ambassador sent to the Gypsy palace 21, for this flame you see will made your words powerful."

"21. Gypsy or gipsy, gipcyan = Egyptian."

Gypsies revere Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Elijah, Jesus The Christ our Lord and the Virgin Mary.

A Gypsy Flamenco Christmas carol called "la Virgen Gitana" ["the Gipsy Virgin"] is dedicated to the Virgin Mary.

Our Venerable Master Samael Aun Weor Clairvoyantly describes the Virgin of Carmel "Mary, the Divine Mother of Jesus of Nazareth" with "Gypsy eyes":

"Indeed, Mary was not that worldly beauty painted in all the watercolors. With the eyes of the Spirit we only contemplate a brunette virgin, burned by the desert sun. Before our astonished spiritual eyes, slender bodies and provocative faces of feminine images are blurred away, replaced by a simple young woman, small in stature, with a slim body, small oval face, blunt nose, protruding upper lip, Gypsy eyes, and wide forehead."

Gypsies also worship "Saint Sarah Kali", wrongly interpreted as the negative aspect of "Kali" by those unaware of their sacred traditions.

"Kali" has two aspects: the Positive Heavenly Kali's aspect is our Divine Mother KUNDALINI, the Serpent that Moses lifted up in the desert. Kali's negative aspect is "the abominable organ Kundartiguador", the dark evil infernal serpent.

"In India, Kali the Divine Mother Kundalini is worshipped, but Kali in her black, fatal aspect is also worshipped. These are the two Marys: the white and the black." (Venerable Master Samael Aun Weor's Teachings.)

"Christ is always the Son of the Divine Mother Kundalini. She always conceives her Son through the work and grace of the Third Logos. She is always Virgin; before the birth, during the birth and after the birth. Among the Egyptians, the Virgin is Isis; among the Hindu, Kali (in her positive aspect); among the Aztecs, Tonantzin. She is Rhea, Cybele, Maria, Adonia, Insoberta, etc., etc., etc." (Venerable Master Samael Aun Weor's Teachings.)

The Virgin "Saint Sarah Kali" of the Gipsies represents Kali's Positive aspect, the Divine Mother Kundalini.

The Virgin "Saint Sarah" of the Gipsies represents Abraham's Wife, Sarah, and Brahma's Wife, Saraswati.

As for the first cities founded by Jorge Robledo bearing the names of Cartago and Antioquia in Colombia, these names evoke ancient stories and great events with deep imprints left on the memory of the Jewish and Christian People of Israel.

A Cartago City district in Valle del Cauca Department in Colombia is called "Modín". In relation to the name "Villa de Medellín", that some ascribe to the "Count of Medellín" (of Jewish origin), others ascribe its origin to "Villa de Medeín" or "Modín" of the Priest Matityahu and his sons the Maccabees.

In Antioquia, Colombia, there are many names of Hebrew origin that were given to a large number of towns by their founders.

Biblical names are very common among Antioquians. Their way of speaking has much in common with the Sephardic accent. The treatment of "Usted" and "Vos" is almost generally used until the present day.

"The familiar form of address does not exist among Sephardim and practically it was not used in Antioquia." [...] "It has been said that the way Antioquians speak and their accent are present in some Sephardic communities..." ("De los Judíos en la Historia de Colombia" por Daniel Mesa Bernal ["Jews in the History of Colombia", by Daniel Mesa Bernal]).

Traditions and customs of Sephardic origin are preserved by family tradition. Antioquian bread is the traditional and original "arepa", handmade with corn and water, without yeast and salt, flat or round, or the bread corresponding to the "Matzah", the unleavened bread and without yeast of the People of Israel of the night of Exodus in the "Pesach" celebrations or "Jewish Passover". The preparation to make "arepas" is called "la masa" [the dough], phonetically similar to the word "the Matzah". The corn for our "Matzah" is left to soak in water overnight before cooking to be further processed in dough in the manual "grinding machine (mill)".

"Hanukkah" celebration in Antioquia, Colombia, was perpetuated in the traditional "Fiesta de los Alumbrados" ["Festival of Lights"] or Day of the "Little Candles" on December 7 and 8 every year, in "remembrance" of the celebration of "The Eight Days of Milah" or "The Eight Days of Hanukkah" (Tikunei Zohar, 13) to commemorate the Covenant of the Alliance.

"Eight"... days after the celebration of our "Hanukkah" or "Chanukah" and before the "manger" with its humble Sukkah (Booth or hut wherein the "Small and Beautiful Savior" will be "born"), the traditional "Novena de Aguinaldos" [Christmas Novena] by Franciscan friar Fernando de Jesús Larrea, born in Quito to Colombian father and Ecuadorian mother, which are inspired "by Medieval Christmas Carols", begins in many households.

In "Compendium and description of the West Indies", written around the year 1629 (published in 1948), Antonio Vásquez de Espinosa said:

"... It is no slight evidence in favor of our thesis that when they conquered the Provinces where at present the city of Antioquia has been founded, in the new Kingdom [of Granada], the local King (or Cacique) was named Isac and his wife ludit (Judith)."

In the book "De los Judíos en la Historia de Colombia" ("Jews in the History of Colombia"), the writer Daniel Mesa Bernal says:

"There is the common belief that during the Conquest and Colonization many converted Jews arrived from Portugal as far as the Mountain (as they used to call Antioquia). Luis Eduardo Agudelo Ramírez believes that "Therefore, whether people of Antioquia have few or much in common with Jews, it was due to the heritage of this first century, resulting not so much from Andalusians, Extremadurans and first Basques, but rather from Portuguese Jews or Christians of Lusitanian origin, who, in their majority, were none other than Sephardic refugees in Portugal after the expulsion from Spain, still awaiting for an objective analysis of their secret history and their real influence on the new American society.".

Antioquians' Hebrew origin is in dispute according to genealogical studies. But we must consider that the Israelites who arrived in Antioquia used to change their names and "surnames" to protect themselves against the tribunals of Inquisition, possibly destroying any document where their former names appeared. One example is the surname "Acosta" which formerly was "de Acosta".

In the book "Cherokee DNA Studies Real People Who Proved the Geneticists Wrong", written by "DONALD N. YATES and TERESA A. YATES", they say:

"Chief Black Fox [*1], my ancestor, was a Scotsman descended from Blacks and Foxes. I believe all these families were Scottish crypto-Jews. They were heavily intermarried, generation after generation."

"I ran a search for matches on Bowles DNA in the Y-STR Haplotype Reference Database. There were 17 matches in Europe—Albania, Berlin, Budapest, Bulgaria, Bydgoszcz in northern Poland, Cologne, Colombia (2), Freiburg, Latium, Pomerania, Stuttgart, Sweden, Tyrol, Umbria, Warsaw and Westphaia. A "one-off" mutation produced Freiburg and Lombardy. The picture that emerged was one that closely echoed the distribution pattern for the Gothic invasions that repeopled Italy, France and Spain. To the contrary, the predominant matches in our Melungeon surname study have led to the Iberian Peninsula and to places like Antioquia, Colombia, where Marranos [*2] and crypto-Jews emigrated. Here was a Jewish haplotype that, historically speaking, seemed to have traveled out of Scandinavia and the Baltic region, passed through Italy to Spain and Scotland and migrated on to the Americas, where it mingled with the Indians."

*1: Cherokee Chief Black Fox (c. 1746-1811).

*2: Among Jewish converts or "Crypto-Jews" ("Hidden Jews") slanderously called "marranos", it was customary to change names and surnames.

In Colombia, Paisas are even today given the term of "Berracos" with labial "B", although in Castilian it is written with labiodental "V".

"Verraco" is a name that stands for "Wild Boar".

In the Far East the Wild Boar is one of the symbolic forms of incarnation of Hindu Lord Vishnu, called "the Varaha Avatar" or "the Boar Avatar".

In Spain and Portugal there are megalithic monuments called "Verracos" ["Boars"] with zoomorphic shapes of bulls, wild boars, etc.

"Vettones'" Culture of Celtic origin is also called "Boars' Culture".

In the Anglo-Saxon epic poem called "Beowulf", translated into Spanish, the word "Boar", which was the animal sacred to the Norse God Frey, is mentioned several times.

"... Frey is the God of Sun and Rain, and the patron of bountiful harvests... He is also the Ruler of the Elves.".

"Frey (Frode, is) the harvest and Boar God,...".

In "THE YOUNGER EDDAS OF STURLESON", the Boar of Frey is "named Gullinbursti [Gold Mane] or Slidrugtanni..."

Venerable Master Samael Aun Weor calls the current...

"... 'Maha-Manvantara' or Great Cosmic Day the 'Maha-Manvantara of the Boar', a completely Sanskrit word..." (Venerable Master Samael Aun Weor).

"... Vishnu [...] in his first Avatara [assumes] the form of a boar, in order to raise the earth on the surface of the waters of space." (H. P. Blavatsky, Volume V of "The Secret Doctrine").

To the Paisas of Colombia the epithet "Berraco" ["Boar"] is not offensive; on the contrary, it has positive meanings. The consciousness of the Crypto-Jewish Soul of Antioquia was able to turn the offensive epithet "marranos" applied to the converted Jews by the Inquisition into the complimentary epithet (not in academic Castilian but in the traditional one of the Paisas) "verraco" or "berraco" ["boar"] spoken and written by the Paisas with labial "b", but written in Castilian with labiodental "v", perhaps as a kind of subconscious "Crypto-Jewish" rebellion against its meaning in Castilian with "v" as it appears in the academic dictionaries of Spanish language.

Despite the denial of several writers, including those from Antioquia and other departments of Colombia, of a strong Jewish heritage among Antioquians, "Several Israelis have defended the Jewish influence on the Paisas. Let us remember Isch Ivri, Itic Croitoru Rotbaum, Julio Guberek, Paul Link, Alberto Gerchunoff and Simon Wiesenthal, among others". ("De los Judíos en la Historia de Colombia" ["Jews in the History of Colombia"], by Daniel Mesa Bernal.)

The Hope of Israel

The following narrative is taken from the work "The Hope of Israel", written in Amsterdam by "Menasseh Ben Israel" (Wise very Learned Hebrew of Portuguese origin, Polyglot, Commentator of Holy Books and Talmud and dedicated "... among others, to Rabbi Joseph da Costa, Deputy Parnassim of Kahal Kadosh of Israel.").

The work contains the narrative of the Jew "Aharon Levi" (who called himself Antonio de Montezinos) of the encounter with approximately 300 "sons of Israel" in the Cordillera Mountains of Ancient Antioquia in Colombia by the year 1642.

It was believed that this encounter happened in a territory divided by La Miel River that runs between the present Departments of Antioquia and Caldas, Colombia. At that time the territorial boundaries were not definitively established and many changes have occurred since then. In any case, the encounter must have taken place at the banks of one of the rivers of the Cordillera Central of the Andes, formerly populated by Indigenous Pijao, Panche and Nutabe, among others.

Chronicler Fray Pedro Simon in Volume V, Chapter XLI, of his "Historical Notices of the Conquest of Tierra Firme in the Western Indies", describes an Indigenous Christian woman Pijao "white-skinned face, tall body, thin and looking no older than fifty,... her name was Anica,...", whom the Pijaos of Cacique Calarca called "Bota Anica" or "Mother Anica".

"Relation of [Aharon Levi, alias,] Antony Montezinus":

"In the 18th of the Month of Elul: the 5404 year from the Worlds creation, and according to common compute, in 1644, Aaron Levi, otherwise called Antonius Montezinus came into this City Amsterdam, and related to the Sieur Menasseh ben Israel, and other cheifetains of the Portugal Nation, Inhabitants of the same City, these things which follow."

"That it was two years and a halfe, since that he going from the Port Honda [on the west bank of the Magdalena river, in present Tolima Department in Colombia] in the West-Indies, to the Papian jurisdiction [in the present Cauca Department], he conducted some Mules of a certaine Indian, whose name was Franciscus Castellanus, into the Province of Quity, and that there was one in company with him and other Indians, whose name was Francis, who was called by all Cazicus. That it happened that as they went over the Mountaines Cordilleræ, a great tempest arose, which threw the loaden Mules to the ground. The Indians being afflicted by the sore tempest, every one began to count his losses; yet confessing that all that and more grievous punishments were but just, in regard of their many sins. But Francis bad them take it patiently, for that they should shortly injoy rest: the others answered, that they were unworthy of it; yea that the notorious cruelty used by the Spaniards towards them, was sent of God, because they had so ill treated his holy people, who wer of al others the most innocent;..."

Indigenous Francisco then spoke to Montezinos about the help that they would receive "via hidden people..."

Some time later, and having traveled to the City of Cartagena in Colombia, Montezinos was taken prisoner by the Inquisition.

In prison he promised himself, if he would be freed from there, he would go back to the same place where he talked with the Indigenous Francisco, "he sought out Franciscus beleeving that hee would repeat to him againe what he had spoken; he therefore being set at liberty, through Gods mercy went to the Port Honda, and according to his desire, found him...".

We include the following paragraphs of the book "The Hope of Israel" written by "Menasseh Ben Israel":

"... But I having curiously examined what ever hath hitherto been writ upon this subject doe finde no opinion more probable, nor agreeable to reason, then that of our Montezinus, who saith, that the first inhabitants of America, were the ten Tribes of the Israelites, whom the Tartarians conquered, and drove away; who after that (as God would have it) hid themselves behind the Mountaines Cordilleræ [of the Ancient Antioquia Department]. ... as also other people of the East-Indies came by that Streight which is between India, and the Kingdome of Anian. But that people, according to our Montezinus, made warre upon those Inhabitants the Israelites, whom they forced up [the Aboriginal Israelites of the Andes of Colombia] unto the mountaines, and the in-land Countries, as formerly the Brittaines were driven by the Saxons into Wales... I see not anything that comes nearer truth..."

The Indigenous Cacique Francisco, after testing Montezinos to know if he was sincere, led him through a very difficult and thoroughly dangerous journey by foot, across the Cordillera Mountains of Ancient Antioquia in Colombia for over a week, starting from the Port Honda, located on the west bank of Magdalena river, in present Tolima Department, Colombia.

"They being thus accoutred, travelled the whole weeke, unto the Sabbath Day; on which day they resting, the day after they went on, till Tuesday, on which day about eight a clock in the morning, they came to a River as bigge as Duerus [possibly "la Miel" River, in the present boundaries between the Departments of Antioquia and Caldas], then the Indian said, Here you shall see your Brethren, and making a signe with the fine linnen of Xylus, which they had about them instead of a Girdle; thereupon on the other side of the River they saw a great smoke, and immediately after, such another signe made as they had made before; a little after that, three men, with a woman, in a little Boat came to them, which being come neare, the woman went ashore, the rest staying in the Boat; who talking a good while with the Indian, in a Language which Montezinus understood not; she returned to the Boat, and told to the three men what she had learned of the Indian; who always eying him, came presently out of the Boat, and embraced Montezinus, the woman after their example doing the like; after which, one of them went back to the Boat, and when the Indian bowed downe courteously, and talked a good while with him. After that, the Indian bid Montezinus to be of good courage, and not to looke that they should come a second time to him, till he had fully learned the things which were told him at the first time. Then those two men coming on each side of Montezinus, they spoke in Hebrew, the 4th.ver. of Deut.6. SEMATH ISRAEL, ADONAI ELOHENU ADONAI EHAD; THAT IS, HEARE O ISRAEL, THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE GOD.
Then the Indian Interpreter being asked, how it was in Spanish, they spoke what followes to Montezinus, making a short pause between every particular:"

"1 Our Fathers are Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Israel, and they signified these foure by the three fingers lifted up; then they joyned Reuben, adding another finger to the former three."

"2 We will bestow severall places on them who have a minde to live with us."

"3 Joseph dwels in the midst of the Sea, they making a signe by two fingers put together, and then parted them."

"4 They said (speaking fast) shortly some of us will goe forth to see, and to tread underfoot; at which word they winked, and stamped with their feet."

"5 One day we shall all of us talke together, they saying, Ba, ba, ba; and we shall come forth as issuing out of our Mother the earth."

"6 A certaine Messenger shall goe forth."

"7 Franciscus shall tell you somewhat more of those things, they making a signe with their finger, that much must not be spoken."

"8 Suffer us that we may prepare ourselves; and they turning their hands and faces every way, thus prayed to God, DO NOT STAY LONG."

"9 Send twelve men, they making a signe, that they would have men that had beards, and who are skillfull in writing."

"The Conference being ended, which lasted a whole day, the same returned on Wednesday, and Thursday, and spake the same things againe, without adding a word; at last Montezinus being weary that they did not answer what he asked them, nor would suffer him to goe over the river, he cast himself into their Boat: but he being forced out againe, fell into the River, and was in danger to be drowned, for he could not swim; but being got out of the water, the rest being angry, said to him; attempt not to passe the River, nor to enquire after more than we tell you; which the Indian interpreted to him, the rest declaring the same things both by signs, and words."

"You must observe, that all those three dayes the Boat, stayed not in the same place, but when those foure who came went away, other foure came, who all as with one mouth, repeated all the fore-mentioned particulars, there came and went about three hundred."

"Those men are somewhat scorched by the Sun, some of them weare their haire long, downe to their knees, other of them shorter, and others of them much as we commonly cut it. They were comely of body, well accoutred, having ornaments on their feet, and leggs, and their heads were compassed about with a linnen cloath."

"Montezinus saith, that when he was about to be gone, on Thursday evening, they shewed him very much courtesie, and brought him whatever they thought fit for him in his journey, and they said, that themselves were well provided with all such things, (sc. meats, garments, flocks, and other things) which the Spaniards in India call their owne. The same day, when they came to the place where they have rested, the night before they came to the River, Montezinus said to the Indian; You remember Francis, that my Brethren told me, that you should tell me something, therefore I entreat you, that you would not thinke much to relate it. The Indian answered, I will tell you what I know, only doe not trouble me, and you shall know the truth, as I have received it from my fore-fathers; but if you presse me too much, as you seeme to doe, you will make me tell you lyes; attend therefore I pray, to what I shall tell you. Thy Brethren are the Sons of Israel, and brought thither by the providence of God, who for their sake wrought many Miracles, which you will not beleeve, if I should tell you what I have learned from my Fathers; we Indians made war upon them in that place, and used them more hardly then we now are by the Spaniards; then by the instigation of our Magicians (whom we call Mohanes) [*] [priests] we went armed to that place where you saw your Brethren, with an intent to destroy them; but not one of all those who went thither, came back againe; whereupon we raised a great Army, and set upon them but with the same successe, for againe none escaped; which hapned also the third time, so that India was almost bereft of all inhabitants, but old men, and women, the old men therefore: and the rest who survived, beleeving that the Magicians used false dealing, consulted to destroy them all, and many of them being killed those who remained promised to discover somewhat that was not knowne; upon that they desisted from cruelty, and they declared such things as follow:"

"That the God of those Children of Israel is the true God, that all that which is engraven upon their stones is true; that about the end of the World they shall be Lords of the world; that some shall come who shall bring you much good, and after that they have enriched the earth with all good things, those Children of Israel going forth out of their Country, shall subdue the whole World to them, as it was subject to them formerly; you shall be happy if you make a League with them."

"Then five of the chiefe Indians (whom they call Cazici who were my Ancestors, having understood the Prophesie of the Magicians, which they had learned of the Wise men of the Hebrewes, went thither, and after much entreaty, obtained their desire, having first made knowne their minde to that woman, whom you saw to be for an Interpreter, (for your Brethren will have no commerce with our Indians) and whosover of ours doth enter the Country of the Brethren, they presently kill him; and none of your Brehtren doe passe into our Country. Now by the help of that Woman we made this agreement with them."

"1 That our five Cazici should come to them, and that alone at every seventy moneths end."

"2 That he to whom secrets should be imparted, should be above the age of three hundred Moones, or Months."

"3 And that such things should be discovered to none in any place where people are, but only in a Desart, and in the presence of the Cazici; and so (said the Indian) we keep that secret among our selves, because that we promise our selves great favour from them, for the good offices which we have done to our Brethren, it is not lawfull for us to visite them, unlesse at the seventy months end: Or if there happens any thing new, and this fell out but thrice in my time; First, when the Spaniards came into this Land; also, when Ships came into the Southerne Sea; and thirdly, when you came, whom they long wished for, and expected. They did much rejoyce for those three new things, because that they said, the Prophesies were fulfilled."

"And Montezinus also said, that three other Cazici were sent to him by Franciscus, to Honda, yet not telling their names, till he had said, you may speake to them freely, they are my fellowes in my Function of whom I have told you, the fifth could not come for age, but those three did heartily embrace him; and Montezinus being asked of what Nation he was, he answered, an Hebrew, of the Tribe of Levi, and that God [Adonay] was his God, etc. which when they had heard, they embraced him againe, and said; Upon a time you shall see us, and shall not know us; We are all your Brethren, by Gods singular favour..."

[*] The "Mohanes" were the Priests or Spiritual Guides of the ancient Indigenous Pijao of the Cordillera Central in Colombia.

After having made a long exposition on the places of the Planet where "The Lost Tribes of Israel" might have taken refuge, Menasseh ben Israel says later in his book:

"SECT. 23. Hitherto we have shewed that the ten Tribes are in divers places, as in the West-Indies, in Sina; in the confines of Tartary, beyond the river Sabbathion, and Euphrates, in Media, in the Kingdome of the Habyssins; of all which the Prophet Isaiah is to be understood, in Isa. 11. 11, [when dealing with the coming of the Messias, he says,] It shall come to passe in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall he left from Assyria, from Egypt, from Pathros, from Ethiopia, from Elam, from Sinear, from Hamath, and from the Islands of the Sea." (11. "And it shall come to pass at that time, that the Lord shall use a second time His might to redeem the remnant of His people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pattros, and from India, and from Elam, and from Babylon, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea." (Targum of Isaiah, XI: 11)."(...)"

"... Hamath, there are many Hamaths mentioned in the Scripture, many understand it of Antioch; [and so says the Chaldee Paraphrase.]"

Menasseh ben Israel remarks:

"... no opinion more probable, nor agreeable to reason, then that of our Montezinus,..." (Menasseh Ben Israel in "ORIGEN DE LOS AMERICANOS esto es Esperanza de Israel [Origin of the Americans this is The Hope of Israel]." Madrid, 1881).

The narrative of Montezinos, who himself asserted its veracity until the last days of his life, seems unlikely to some people, arguing that there is no evidence or that it is unscientific. But these arguments do not prove that his narrative was not true.

At that encounter in the Cordillera (Central) of the Andes, the Israelites mentioned by Montezinos did not speak either Montezinos' Hebrew or Spanish. Montezinos "understood not" what they said. The Indigenous Francisco was the interpreter for both, which would mean that either the Israelites spoke Indigenous Francisco's language or Francisco knew something of the Israelites' language unknown to Montezinos, who spoke more by signs and gestures than words, although they said few words in Spanish learned from the Indigenous Francisco "the Indian Interpreter being asked, how it was in Spanish,..."

How did the Hebrews of the Cordillera of the Andes and Montezinos, who was Jew, not understand each other in their language?

Ancient Hebrew Language was lost. Even at the time of the Babylonian Exile, the Books of Moses were rewritten by Ezra... as since long time the Original Books were already "lost" or hidden... "and in the transmission they did not remain intact" as they were distorted...

The Indigenous Francisco bore witness that the Israelites of that Cordillera of the Andes wrote everything on stone: "all that which is engraven upon their stones is true;..."

The language spoken by "the sons of Israel" of the Andes, if it was Hebrew, was an unknown Hebrew to the Jew Aharon Levi or Montezinos "an Hebrew, of the Tribe of Levi,..."

How did the "sons of Israel" come to the Cordillera of the Andes? What traces did they leave behind them? Why did they not reappear? etc., are queries that some have made to question the veracity of Montezinos' testimony, not considering that the ancient inhabitants of what is today called America spoke about communications, even over long distances, through caves, caverns, tunnels, pathways and cities within the Earth...

Archaeological investigations made in the present Tolima Department (in the Cordillera Central of the Andes of Colombia) have reported that this region was already inhabited by Aboriginals more than twelve thousand years ago.

The Indigenous (Pijao?) Francisco gave Montezinos a hint that those "sons of Israel" were already there when Indigenous arrived "in that place": "we Indians made war upon them in that place, and used them more hardly then we now are by the Spaniards."

It is possible that the "sons of Israel" were referring to the Hidden World Within the Earth as their place of origin in the following words:

"4 They said (speaking fast) shortly some of us will goe forth to see, and to tread underfoot; at which word they winked, and stamped with their feet."

"5 One day we shall all of us talke together, they saying, Ba, ba, ba; and we shall come forth as issuing out of our Mother the earth."

Another evidence (not far off) of the coming from within the Earth of the "forefathers" of the Indigenous Aborigines of the Cordilleras of the Andes, whose priests were called "Mohanes", can be found in Chronicler Fray Pedro Simon's following words:

"... indians who are called Pijaos in this Kingdom (on whom we will dwell at length in our third part) say that their forefathers were born in the center of the earth, and that they came to this world through the mountains located between Cacataima river and Anaima valley." ("Noticias Historiales de las Conquistas de Tierra Firme en las Indias Occidentales" [Historical Notices of the Conquests of the Tierra Firme in the Western Indies] by Fray Pedro Simon of the Order of St. Francis of the New Kingdom of Granada", "Part Two", edition of "1891").

The "Mohanes" of the Indigenous People to whom Indigenous Francisco (possibly an Indigenous Pijao) belonged were also "Mohanes" or Pijao Priests whose ancestors came from within the Earth through the mountains.

Going back to the colonization and expansion of the descendants of the people who settled in the Andes of Colombia, "people who" settled "in that region" of "The Villa de la Candelaria of Medellín", due to their rapid colonization, many other centers were formed in different places of Colombia, one of which we will briefly mention as related to the Messianic Hopes of the Israel of the Andes of the spiritual part:

"... A significant number of settlers crosses the Cordillera Central, penetrating into Tolima Department..."

[…]

"In 1851, there was already a small village known as Aldea del Líbano [Tolima Department, Colombia], a hamlet that was colonized by Antioquians. Paisas who, by pick and ax, cut down precious-wood trees such as cedar, to build there a small village of good-natured lands to which many Antioquian families arrived little by little, factor that constitutes Paisa idiosyncrasy which characterizes Lebanese people." (From the book "La Colonización Antioqueña" ["The Antioquian Colonization"] by Eduardo Santa).

There, in the "Aldea del Líbano", Tolima, Colombia, transformed into a City years later, the Human Person of our Venerable and Beloved Master Rabolú or the Prophet Elijah reincarnate (who was the Great Matityahu of "Villa de Modiin" or "Medein" in others times) was born with strong Sephardic genetic heritage from Antioquia, whose melting pot of Indigenous people, Jews, Gypsies, Basques "and tornadizos [turncoats, renegades] moors and moorish" was gradually formed in Villa de la Candelaria of Medellín (Villa de Medeiin, Modeiin o Modiin?), Antioquia, in the Cordilleras of the Andes in Colombia.

The Human Person of V.M. Thoth-Moisés' Bodhisattva and his Beloved Wife Gloria María del Socorro Vélez de Palacio, also were born there, in Villa de la Candelaria of Medellín.

Colombian Poet Jorge Isaacs, author of the Novel "María" and born into an Israelite family, in his Poem "La Tierra de Córdoba" ["The Land of Córdoba"], extols Antioquian women's beauty where he says:

"... your daughters are beautiful and pride of Israel."

Elijah and Moses are, according to one key [of interpretation], the Two Witnesses of the Apocalypse, the Two Lights on both sides of the "Golden Candelabrum" of Seven Branches or Menorah which, integrated into a whole, form a Nine-Branched Candelabrum or Hanukiah, whose Feast or Festival of Lights is celebrated by tradition in Modeiin or Medeiin; and with a great display of Lights in Villa de la Candelaria in Medellín, in all Antioquia and the rest of Colombia.

The name "Antioquia" was given to this department of the Andes of Colombia in remembrance of "the disciples" of the Apostles of our Lord Jesus the Christ who began to be called Christians first at Antioch of Syria.

From the Andes of Colombia, the "Tikkun" or Restoration of the spiritual part of Israel of the Andes begun and, from there, a new "Tikkun" or "Restoration" of the Spiritual Temple of the Holy One, Blessed Be, and of the Holy Shekinah also begun through all that is symbolized and represented by the Menorah or Candelabrum of Seven Lights, with Two more Lamps on both sides that represent the Two Witnesses, Elijah and Moses, integrating to shape the Hanukiah, or Candelabrum of nine lighted lamps, to enlighten with the Light of Christ, the Son of Man who is in the midst of the seven golden candelabra, the Occult Wisdom of the Holy Torah.

In 1917, in the "Barrio Egipto [Egypt Quarter]" of Santafé de Bogotá, Cundinamarca department, in Colombia, the Human Person of our Venerable and Beloved Master Samael Aun Weor's Bodhisattva, "The Lion of the Tribe of Judah", the Warrior Priest King Messiah announced in the Essene Texts found in the caves surrounding Qumran, was born.

In 1926, in "El Líbano", Tolima department, in Colombia, "colonized by Antiochians", the Human Person of our Venerable and Beloved Master Rabolú's Bodhisattva, the Ruler King Messiah announced in the Essene Texts found in the caves surrounding Qumran, was born.

In 1951, in Medellín, Antioquia department, in Colombia, the Human Person of V.M. Thoth-Moisés' Bodhisattva, the Prophet King Messiah announced in the Essene Texts found in the caves surrounding Qumran, was born.

Then, Our Venerable and Beloved Master Judas of Kerioth's announcement in "The Flight of the Feathered Serpent" is being in part fulfilled, where He says:

"And the Mayab of the Andes be then the cradle of the new civilization".

Likewise, the beginning of "The Hope of Israel", the Israel of the Andes, of Latin America, of the spiritual part, is also being fulfilled.

"Only through the Great Arcanum can we be saved and receive the name of the Father on the forehead. The people of Zion are the people of Israel (God's spiritual people). These people are formed by all those who practice sexual magic (people of chastity)." (Venerable Master Samael Aun Weor's Teachings in "The Message of Aquarius").

"Actually, here Latin America, that is, the Andes, is called to become the Cradle of Civilization, that is, of the Spiritual part, it is called to accomplish a great mission, as was accomplished by this..., in Israel, over there, in Egypt... [*]" (Venerable Master Rabolú's Teachings).

[*] - "Ah!, yes, Israel in Egypt, Moses and all of Them..."

Shimon ben Yohai, explaining Patriarch Jacob's prophecy in the Book of Genesis, 49: 10 esoterically, says in The Zohar (we place some explanations of ours in brackets):

"... 'The sceptre shall not depart from Judah nor the ruler's staff from between his feet', 'the sceptre' referring to the Messiah of the house of Judah [the Warrior Priest King Messiah, 'the Lion of the Tribe of Judah', Venerable Master Samael Aun Weor, 'the Initiator Word of the New Age of Aquarius'], and 'the staff' to the Messiah of the house of Joseph [the Ruler King Messiah, the Prophet Elijah Reincarnate, our Venerable Master Rabolú]. 'Until Shiloh cometh': this is Moses [the Prophet King Messiah, V.M. Thoth-Moisés], the numerical value of the two names Shiloh and Moses being the same." (The Zohar).

The study and practice of the esoteric teachings contained in the Zohar (studying them with "sharp eye" because there are adulterations and interpolations that were introduced throughout time) and in the light of Venerable Master Samael Aun Weor's, Venerable Master Rabolú's Gnostic teachings and V.M. Thoth-Moisés' testimonies, contain the keys that allow us to become "Sons of Israel" of the spiritual part, since whoever incarnates Tiphereth, who is the Son of Man, the Interior Inner Christ, becomes an Israelite in his soul and heart.

Shimon ben Yohai, situating his prophetic teachings in a future, though fulfilled before (one of the forms of prophetic interpretation that can also be found in the Essene Texts from Qumran), referred to the Supreme Messiah's arrival in those times:

"... the Messiah has revealed himself in the land of Galilee. And all who are diligent in the study of the Torah —and there shall be few such in the world— will gather round him." (The Zohar).

The previous words, in an Interpretation, refer to our Lord Jesus The Christ, the Supreme Messiah who revealed Himself "in the land of Galilee".

In these end times, the eschatological "Galilee" is Latin America, the lands from where the Three Messiahs sent by the Supreme Messiah who is our Lord Jesus The Christ, the Only-Begotten Son of the Absolute Heavenly Father, our Father who is in Heaven, sprouted.
